Subject: The Pulp-Fiction Version
In the hands of anyone but the "B" unit at Paramount Pictures, namely Pine-Thomas Productions, this would be a total disaster, but it isn't, even with Sam Newfield directing. This a very cut-down, pulp fiction version of "Ebb Tide" which had been filmed before in full color in 1937 by Paramount and failed at the box office. This version is very good but talky at times. Rory Calhoun, Paul Kelly, and a young and somewhat plain Rhonda Fleming are fine (if you can imagine Ms Fleming ever being plain). Mis-cast are John Abbot and a "flaming" Alan Napier, and both are over the top to the extreme. Beyond that this is a very good little "B" that breezes along quite well. Originally in Cinecolor and using shots from the 1937 film, this B/W TV print is pretty good. Sound is good but needs to be played back at top volume. Note: Music by Darrell Calker, one of the main "B" composers of the 40's and 50's. Watchable and fun. Enjoy.
